French Labour reform protests

Thousands demonstrated in Paris, France, on 23 September in opposition to the labour reforms of President Macron. The protest was organised by Jean-Luc Mélenchon, a left-wing presidential candidate and leader of La France Insoumise (Unbowed France) who claimed 150,000 attended. At the protest Mélenchon bought a copy of L'Egalité, the paper of the Socialist Party's sister party in France. Unions and workers are fighting the changes to the French Code du Travail that they say would make their position more precarious and give bosses greater flexibility to hire and fire. They are also protesting against the reforms trade unionists blocked access to several fuel depots on 24 September and the workers' unions have threatened a fuel strike.
